use what you have or another reason I love my Juki
My son needed a belt, even though I am continually feeding him and his bottomless pit. (Oh, to have his metabolism!)
My husband had a belt that the holes were wearing out, and it was splitting a bit. So he cut it down to youth size, punched new holes with a leather punch and I sewed around the edges. I was afraid that I would break a needle or worse, but my Juki pulled through. It sewed through the belt without a problem. (wow!) My son loves his new belt, and I love that we reused something we already had.
